Maine's Secretary of State Charlie Summers  reminds voters that the deadline for requesting an absentee ballot for the November 6th election is Thursday, November 1st

Except in special circumstances allowed by law, voters must ask for their absentee ballots by the close of business on the Thursday prior to an election. This includes requests to vote the ballot in the presence of the Municipal Clerk.  After this deadline, a voter may request an absentee ballot only if the voter completes a Special Circumstances Application. All ballots must be submitted to the municipal clerk by 8 PM on Election Day.
